Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) farm-raised catfish fillets
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Preparation

  1. 1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with Cajun seasoning and salt. Add 2 fillets to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan, and keep warm. Wipe pan clean with paper towels; recoat with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 fillets.
  2. 2. While fish cooks, combine mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with fish.
Note:

Instead of a traditional crunchy coating, we used a Cajun spice blend to season the fish and pan-fried it in a pan coated with cooking spray, which helps keep calories in check and is less involved than deep-fat frying. For a spicier sauce, add more hot pepper sauce.
